In addition to being home of the Wright Brothers, Dayton, OH has more patents per capita than any other city in the nation. Some of these inventions include the cash register, the stepladder, microfiche, waterproof cellophane, pop top beverage cans, the movie projector, space food, parking meters, the aircraft supercharger, the automobile self-starter, gas masks, and the parachute.

The first All-American Soap Box Derby was held in Dayton on August 19, 1934.

The Incredible Hulk, Bruce Banner, is from Dayton in the Marvel Comics universe. This was his original comic book version, and not necessarily his tv show, movie, or Ultimate comic book version.
